Green Book takes a muddled viewpoint of racism. But together, Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen bring to screen an unforgettable chemistry that's poignant, rousing, and which single-handedly enlivens the broad strokes of the film's script.
Sometimes life is stranger than art, sometimes art imitates life, and sometimes life imitates art. If life starts imitating hopeful art-that's uplifting. That's the goal of art, as I see it. "Green Book" uplifts.
Is it a feel-good charmer poised to rake in greenbacks and Oscar gold? You bet! But don't let that keep you away from this overall well balanced (and timed) look forward from the safe distance of America's motley past.
It's one thing to depict racial inequality by presenting facts, but it's truly a moving experience when it's told in such a personal level and see how hearts are being transformed by personal relationships.
It's really enjoyable to watch and despite the criticism of it being a "white saviour" film, it's essentially about two racially diverse men who get to know each other - and are thus saved from their own shortcomings.
